  • Hello,

    Suggest you to run System File Checker scan:

    1. Search for 'command prompt' using Windows Search.

    2. From results, right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.

    3. Type sfc /scannow command and press Enter key.

    4. Let the command complete and then reboot the machine.

    If issue still persists, perform clean boot:

  • Hi Banjoflo, 

    What's the existing system build? Please run "winver" to check.

    Please check if the issue occur in Clean Boot environment and Safe Mode environment. 

    Try to uninstall the existing keyboard driver and mouse driver in Device Manager panel, then reboot computer to load them again to check. Or we could go to manufacturer website to download the compatibility one. 

    Update your existing system to the latest version through Settings\Update & Security\Windows update.
